Dutch Baby

People say it is the thought that counts when it comes to gift giving, and my thoughts were on this recipe when I picked out Nick's Christmas present. For Christmas, I gave Nick an All Clad stainless steel 10 inch frying pan.  The only reason I did this is so we could make a Dutch baby together *no pun intended*.  The recipe is dead easy and it is a lot of fun to watch the batter grow and rise up in the oven.  This recipe is basically an egg pancake recipe with the egg as the rising agent and it is just so simple that I couldn't resist trying this out.  The result is a crunchy exterior, soft and chewy interior, and perfect with either macerated strawberries and ricotta, or if you like it simple like me, just drizzled with some good maple syrup and served with a side of fruit.  It was absolutely delicious and now one of my breakfast favorites! 

Serves: 2
approx prep time: 10min
approx cook time: 20min

2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
pinch of nutmeg
1.5 tablespoons butter
10 inch frying pan that can go in the oven

1) Set the oven rack set in the middle of the oven and preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2) Place a 10-12 inch frying pan into the oven with the butter.
3) Once the butter melts, pour the batter into the pan and return it to the oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown and serve immediately.
